    Basically very similar knives, I believe - and also similar to Kochi. General pro kitchen duty.

    Meanwhile, a Munetoshi butcher is on its way. Can't wait.

    I have seen both Wakuis and Itto-Ryu that were lighter and extremely thin behind the edge and others that were significantly stouter. You really need a reliable seller you can communicate with regarding the details of their current stock. I haven't owned a V2 knife, but on paper I prefer it to Shirogami 2 as I prefer Aogami 2 to Shirogami 2.
